Product DescriptionThe DK Illustrated Family Bible is a book a family will treasure possessing and sharing together. It retells more than 130 stories from the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures (Old and New Testaments) in simple and easy to understand language. Each story has photos, illustrations or paintings and historical facts that relate to the time in which the story occurs. Short passages at the end of each story explain the meaning behind the story helping the reader better understand the purpose of the story. The front of the Illustrated Family Bible gives some history about the books such as how they were found and chosen to be in the Bible. There is an explanation about the covenants God has made with humankind and each section, Hebrew and Christian scriptures, has an explanation about the books found in that particular section. Also helpful to the family are the maps, scriptures references, the index and a glossary of people found in the stories. Several of the paintings found in the book are classical paintings so parents may want to do some previewing before sharing with children. The Illustrated Family Bible is a hardcover book with 320 pages.
